Hi,

 

If you are running any anti-virus software on your computer, I have found that you need to turn the anti-virus off for the executable installation to happen over a USB connection. Documentation from Freedom Scientific does not make any mention that anti-virus software may block the installation.

Subject: update for focus 40 braille display

 

I am having a little trouble updating my braille display. My USB will charge my display but even if I reset the display to USB, which I believebelievei have to do in order to do the installation, it does not recognize the display. I can use it in blue tooth though as I am now. I sure would like to update it though. Any suggestions?

Hiya Folks,

 

Am trying to setup my Outlook 2019 as much as I had Outlook 2010 looking but for the life of me I cannot Tab to the folder that has inbox, sent draft etc unless I do the Control Y shortcut.

 

Does anyone have a step by step that I can setup my layout view that I can Tab from my messages inbox to that folder I mentioned above?

 

Any help will be appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Jim

Well, I’m getting a bit confused myself. It seems that I do get different results with CTRL1 or 2. As I look at my version of Slack, Slack Version 4.11.2, I feel like Slack works differently.

I’m finding that the long list of keystrokes, (CTRL+/, have no consistency. I’m determined to learn Slack since it appears that now, everyone insists in using this very ugly product.

Are there Slack users? I’ve bee looking for some kind of Slack  accessibility list but what used to be available is no longer valid.

It's a little promising but still not like before. What does CTRL+ 1 do in JAWS?  I tried looking it up in keyboard help but it didn't say anything.
In Slack, CTRL + 1 is a shortcut for changing to a workspace.

I was using JAWS 2020 with Slack.
Slack was putting JAWS into application mode regularly, and I'd press the + key to get back into virtual PC mode. This allowed me to navigate by regions fairly well.
I've installed JAWS 2021 and now notice I can't get out of application mode in Slack.  The same is true for JAWS 2020.
The only major change I'm aware of is that I installed JAWS 2021.

Any ideas on what might be going on?

Subject: Suggestions of how to use Google slides using JAWS 2020 and Windows 10 needed please

 

Hi All,

 

I was contacted by a professor about a new course I am beginning using Zoom. He wants me to be able to access google slides and be able to edit within the slides.

 

I do have a gmail account.

 

I have found some information on google documents but not google slides.

 

If anyone has any suggestions of resources to help me learn this, that would be great as I have never used the google suite and have my gmail set up to use in outlook.

I am a person who is totally blind, using JAWS 2020 and Windows 10.

 

I plan to have Zoom open on one device and resources such as google slides and the workbook and texts on a separate laptop with earbud for that computer tucked in my headset and microphone that is connected to the laptop I am using for Zoom.

Thank-you for any advice.

Respectfully yours,

Sharon Ballantyne

I would first save the jaws settings in jaws utilities.
Then go to the freedom scientific folder and only delete the folder of the
version that is to be reinstalled.

If you delete that folder, you will delete all settings for all Jaws

Under %appdata%\freedom scientific and open the Jaws folder, you will find
subfolders for each version of jaws that is installed.

I don't know exactly what deleting that folder will do for you, but just
pointing out that there are more versions of Jaws in there you may want to
be aware of.

What will happen is that up on the start of JAWS after deletion, the
settings will be restored from C:\programdata\freedomscientific\jaws\XXX
whhere XXX is the JAWS version number. These settings are the factory
settings usually.

If you stream NBC using Jaws, you may want to investigate turning on the Secondary Audio Channel for Audio descriptions.
